2013 IAA: 2014 Mercedes-Benz S63 AMG shown in Frankfurt [Live Photos]

Article by Christian A., on September 17, 2013

The 2014 Mercedes-Benz S63 AMG had its official introduction, after it has been teased and later leaked. The new model, which is set to have its public unveiling at the Frankfurt Motor Show, has the usual AMG modifications when it comes to styling. It features bolder bumpers, thicker side sills, bigger 19-inch alloy wheels and a quad exhaust setup that make the car appear more menacing.

But then, others claim that it should still seem meaner. It is powered by an updated Euro 6-compliant twin-turbo V8 5.5-liter engine, producing 585 bhp (436 kW) and 900 Nm (664 lb-ft). The direct-injected gasoline engine includes Piezo injectors and an all-aluminum crankcase that comes with four valves per cylinder (with camshaft adjustment).

The mill features an air-to-water intercooler and an ECO start/stop function. It gets a seven-speed AMG SPEEDSHIFT MCT sports transmission that comes in three modes: "C" (Controlled Efficiency), "S" (Sport) and "M" (Manual). In comparison to the former model, the new S63 AMG is lighter by as much as 220 lbs (100 kg) due to its use of AMG forged alloys, a lightweight lithium-ion battery (-20 kg / 44 lbs) and a two-piece braking system that weighs less.

The outer skin of the car as well as the roof and front end uses aluminium. Meanwhile, the spare wheel recess is built from carbon fiber. Because of this, the short wheelbase model has a weight of 4,343 lbs (1,970 kg) with the fuel tank 90% filled but exclusive of driver and luggage. Under the same conditions, the long wheelbase model weighs 4,398 lbs (1,995 kg).

The 2014 Mercedes-Benz S63 AMG can accelerate from zero to 62 mph (100 km/h) in 4.4 seconds for both SWB and LWB versions. The speed of the all-wheel drive 4MATIC long-wheelbase model is faster than the other two and can do the sprint in only 4 seconds. The three models can reach a maximum speed of 155 mph or 250 km/h (electronically limited).
